Pulled up TA and hit the near me now button when working near downtown St. Louis. The Fountain on Locust came up and a review mentioning soup and grilled cheese caught my eye on a 20 degree day. First, the building and decor is unique. It used to be a Stutz Car Showroom and reminds you of something out of... More

While in town again, I brought more of my family members here for dessert. We were delighted with the Banana Split and the seasonal ice cream called snowflake, I think.

This is a great little place, whether you want a good simple soup and sandwich before you head to the Symphony, or you're craving a wicked ice cream dessert after a show at the Fox. The art deco room with its beautiful bar and painted ceilings feels like a speakeasy and is worth the visit. The owner will welcome you... More

Had the Grilled Cheese& Turkey with a cup of sweet potato soup. Other members of the party had the red beans and rice and the dill pickle soup. All were excellent choices. Don't leave with out having some ice cream or sundae.

My husband and I had lunch at this quirky and art deco-ish eatery. Festively decorated for the holidays, Joy Grdnic, the owner of this fun restaurant was greeting everyone and making sure you enjoyed your visit. Our soups, salads and Moroccan pot pie were absolutely delish! We treated ourselves to the "World's Smallest Hot Fudge Sundae "for dessert....which was too... More

Auto Row Art Deco with world-class offerings of sandwiches. But the chocolates and the rich/creative ice cream concoctions are to die for!

Have made sure to go there every time we are in town. The ice cream is so good, and the decor is really cool. The worlds smallest sundae is absolutely tiny, (1 or 2 delicious bites) but a great cap to a meal. All the sundaes are great. My fave is the nutty Irishman. Consistent great service.
